Jake Roberts Comments On Vince McMahon's Retirement

WWE Hall of Famer Jake 'The Snake' Roberts spoke on Busted Open Radio about Vince McMahon's recent retirement. As noted, McMahon retired last week, stepping down from WWE after allegations involving hush money and sexual misconduct.

"I didn't know if he'd retire or if somebody would kill him first," said Roberts."I really didn't because he's pissed off a lot of friggin people, man. And sometimes money can get you out of shit. But all it takes is one loose nut to put a shell in your ass that stops everything. And I always thought that it would be something along the lines of FOX television. Maybe that might try it and throw the ball out there as AEW has." (h/t to WrestleZone)

Roberts also commented about how believes that All Elite Wrestling is taking it to WWE. He made his AEW debut in early 2020. There he would come out and deliver a promo to Cody Rhodes, even mentioning a new "client," who turned out to be former IWGP United States Champion Lance Archer.

"There's a whole world out there that's still wanting more and more, and they don't like the flavor that WWE is putting out there," said Roberts. "For a long time, Vince was the only game in town. Well, he's not the only game in town anymore. There's a new game, and it's getting attention. It's getting momentum going, and that's the thing about momentum. Once it gets going, it starts to snowball once it snowballs, it's unstoppable. And Tony and they are getting close to that point. And I hope to hell they do it, man. I hope to be a part of it. I haven't been on TV in several months now, but I guess they're saving me for a special occasion. I don't mind; I'm still getting paid. So I'm pretty happy." (h/t to WrestleZone)

Roberts has continued to align himself with Archer throughout the two years he's been with the company, though he hasn't been on AEW TV since the April 27th edition of "Dynamite."
